What impressed you positively?

"Brand new med school building in the old Cardiac Center, new lecture hall, super cool sim lab. The people at Creighton are all super nice and friendly, and the admissions office seems very accessible. They also told us exactly the day we would hear back from them which is super nice. The option to do years 3-4 in Phoenix is also a great option to have." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Omaha isn't the most exciting city in the world, and the weather is pretty cold. The new med school building is a little removed from the main campus now, and the new hospital is new which is nice, but it's no longer across the street from the med school." Report Response
